Dear Blue Jays,
As a reminder…..
All USD 475 activities (practices/games/events, etc) have been suspended through Sunday March 22. We will keep everyone informed with updates in the coming days and/or weeks. We ask for your continued patience during this difficult time but want to make sure we do our part in making our community, state and nation safe. Please also check for communication from USD 475 regarding school, meal opportunities and all things associated with the school district and the district’s response to COVID-19.
We will continue to monitor information/decisions regarding activities from the Kansas State High School Activities Association (KSHSAA) www.kshsaa.org
. KSHSAA has released the following regarding spring sports and activities:
(Monday, March 16, all spring sports and activities are suspended through Sunday, March 22. This includes cancellation of all practices and competitions for this week. This prohibition is consistent with KSDE and governmental guidance and may be extended, should conditions warrant. Please note spring sports team members are prohibited from club or outside team participation and practice during this period. Not only would such outside participation be contrary to handbook rule, it would be contrary to the very reason activities are cancelled during the time we seek to mitigate potential transfer of the contagion.)
For those who have continued questions regarding COVID-19 we encourage you to follow the guidance of health officials, including agencies like the Center for Disease Control (CDC). http://www.cdc.gov
and the World Health Organization (WHO) https://www.who.int/
